2020 Annual Report, Safe Walk & Bike Green Bay

Safe Walk and Bike Green Bay

The Safe Walk & Bike Working Group is pleased to release their 2020 Annual Report of accomplishments from the Green Bay Safe Walk & Bike Plan. This Plan, completed in 2019, was a collaborative effort between the City of Green Bay and Green Bay Area Public School District. It functions as both a Safe Routes to School plan and a Bicycle & Pedestrian plan.

Once the Plan was adopted by both the Green Bay City Council and the GBAPS School Board, the Safe Walk & Bike Working Group was established. This is a group of technical experts, non-profit agencies, elected officials, city staff, and school district staff committed to the implementation of the Plan. 

The 2020 Annual Report reflects the accomplishments of this group, as well as the active implementation of the Plan. This report details achievements in the “5 E’s”: Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Enforcement, and Evaluation. 

Highlights from 2020 include the addition of 2.52 bike lanes to the City, an increase of 17%. A portion of these added bike lane miles created a needed connection from Downtown to Bay Beach Amusement Park and surrounding neighborhoods. Also accomplished in 2020 were the City’s first buffered bike lanes, installed on Walnut Street.
